Exclusive: NCPCR initiates action against pro-AAP YouTuber Dhruv Rathee for illegally obtaining IP location of a minor

The commission has directed Twitter Inc. to take appropriate action against Dhruv Rathee within seven days of the issue of the letter.

National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has initiated an inquiry against pro-AAP vlogger Dhruv Rathee for illegally obtaining the IP location of a 15-year-old boy and threatening him on the social media platform. As per the sources, in a letter addressed to Twitter Inc. NCPCR said that the commission received a complaint that a 15-year-old boy is being harassed and threatened on Instagram by Dhruv Rathee.

The commission further said that the boy had highlighted that Rathee messaged the kid on Instagram and threatened to harm him. The boy posted the details on Twitter. The kid further alleged that Rathee threatened him of legal consequences and claimed he had obtained his location by IP address. Rathee claimed he would drag the kid’s name in a fake case if the kid continues to support other individuals.

The commission took cognizance of the matter under Section 13 (1) (d) (j) and (k) of CPCR Act, 2005 and initiated inquiry against Dhruv Rathee. It was further stated that obtaining the IP address of the minor and threatening him on social media platform is grave and serious in nature.
